The Scale Up CFO Agenda

We are pleased to be co- hosting The Scale Up CFO Agenda with Smith and Williamson on 11th October 2018.This takes the form of a round table breakfast. This is the third in a series of round tables we have co-hosted with Smith and Williamson, each one looking at a slightly different set of challenges and opportunities facing the Finance Director in a growth company.

For this breakfast we are delighted to hear from Piers Wilson, Group Finance Director of Arena Events Group plc, a business which services major sporting outdoor and leisure events including Wimbledon Tennis, Cheltenham Festival and the Superbowl through its operations across Europe, the US, the Middle East and Asia.

Piers has been the Group Finance Director since 2012 and in that time has helped to steer the Group from Private Equity ownership to an AIM listing, and through dramatic global growth. He is looking forward to sharing some of his experiences with you in particular focusing on using a listing as a platform to fund international acquisitions and expansion.

Total Capital Partners worked with EquityChair to recruit a Chairman for our recent investment in Meter Provida.  Cindy Casciani was careful to listen and understand what was needed not only in terms of skills and experience but also cultural fit.  She provided an excellent short-list of candidates, all of a very high calibre. Throughout the process, Cindy provided continued support as we made our decision.  We were very impressed with the service provided – and we would recommend it to others. We will certainly look to work with EquityChair in the future.”
